Look around you. Take the time to consider exactly where you are at this moment. Breathe deeply and meditate on the fact that God knows you, right now, wherever you are. God is with you at this moment and sees you and knows the desires of your heart.
Take a deep breath and allow God's desires to fill your heart.
Exhale, and let go of your worries and those things to which you have been clinging and which may have gotten in the way of your relationship with God today. Take two more deep breaths.
If individuals were to desire to do something themselves with their faculties, they would hinder and lose the goods that God engraves on their souls through that peace and idleness.
St. John of the Cross
John urges patience with God’s transforming work in our soul, lest we are tempted to try to ‘save’ ourselves. Pray in peace and with receptivity today as God works wonders within you.
Quiet yourself. Open your heart.
Take three deep breaths.
Disconnect and listen.
